To keep tabs on the ever-growing pop culture zeitgeist that is Star Wars, we bring you State of the Empire. Led by Art Director Cap Blackard, the series speculates on the future of the franchise and looks for news in Alderaan places.
Sometimes things don’t go according to plan. Just ask Lord & Miller.
To celebrate 50 episodes of State of the Empire, Cap went out to L.A. to hang with Matt and storm Lucasfilm for Solo intel. And… well, though we didn’t end up like the Bothan spies, at least they had something to show for themselves. It’s 60 days until we’re strapped in for the latest Star Wars and we’re still flying without a targeting computer.
But hey – you know when State of the Empire is in town there’s always a party. So we’re celebrating #ImperialMarch by scoping out YOUR picks for the greatest Imps of ’em all. Plus we discover surprising ties between forthcoming novels and the theme park, Galaxy’s Edge, swoop into some deep, classic Star Wars lore in Solo, explore the sordid secrets of the Rancor Giga Pet, and get ready for the impending return of one of the greatest and greenest heroes in the galaxy: Jaxxon.
Support State of the Empire!
